Indulge me for a moment,,, as far as watchmaking is concerned the 1970's is sadly most remembered for the so called quartz crisis during which many great Swiss watch makers disappeared as they couldn’t compete with the cheaper quartz watches arriving from the far East ,what many people overlook is that prior to the seventies many great Swiss watchmakers had already been pursuing the development of quartz powered watches ,the famous and highly collectible Beta 21 movement was the result of a group of these companies including Rolex and Omega working together to develop a highly accurate and reliable movement .
During the late sixties Omega was also working on a solo project with development costs rumoured to be around 30,000,000 Swiss Francs, a huge amount of money 50 years ago the sole aim of this project was to produce the world’s most accurate wristwatch and one example of the result of this endeavour sits proudly in the British Museum and happily now I am offering someone the opportunity to purchase a stunning example of this remarkable feat
Only ever produced in very small numbers of less than 1000 this stunning example will be one of the finest available anywhere in the world, not only is the watch in fantastic condition and working correctly it also comes as a remarkable complete set including;
Omega international guarantee booklet correctly completed and dated 1976
Omega mega quartz 2400 booklet
Official Marine chronometer certificates all showing the correct serial numbers
Original Omega certificate wallet, unfortunately split down the back
Original and very hard to find Omega marine chronometer wooden box
An amazing addition to any collection and a sure-fire investment opportunity
